New Wine, New Wineskins at Multnomah University is proud to host a public screening/discussion of the documentary “Professor Norman Cornett: Since when do we divorce the right answer from an honest answer?” on November 2, 2015.

About Professor Norman Cornett

NormanCornett_blogProfessor Cornett is a specialist in theology and culture, particularly theology and the arts. He developed a method of teaching which he calls, “dialogic, ” that uniquely engages students’ creativity. He lost his job at McGill University over the impact of this methodology, and his former students rallied around him.

The documentary

Professor Cornett’s innovative views on learning are portrayed in “Professor Norman Cornett,” a documentary by Alanis Obomsawin, one of Canada’s most distinguished filmmakers. The National Film Board of Canada released the film in 2009, and it now screens in universities throughout North America and Europe. Immediately after the showing at MU, Professor Cornett will lead a “dialogic” discussion with audience members, fielding questions and speaking about his unique vision for education.

Multnomah University Appearing in Portlandia Season 3

Remember this casting call for  Portlandia Season 3 filming on campus?

Portlandia TV Show Features Multnomah University Campus

Portlandia filmed a number of sketches for season 3 for two days this past summer and we had a blast. The Portlandia film crew and actors were some of the best people we've ever had the privilege of working with. It was great seeing Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen hanging around the Admissions Offices or sitting in the commuter lounge of the JCA or sweating it out for three hours with Dr. Dan Lockwood in a very hot Mitchell Library because the sound guys needed the AC turned off!

A Conference On Fatherlessness In Portland

Why Attend

"A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling." – Psalm 68:5

In 2010 24.7 million American children lived in a biologically father-absent home. That equates to 33 percent of America’s kids living without a biological father in their household. Over twenty million lived with no father (biological, adoptive, or step).  Father-Shift seeks to bring awareness to this epidemic and equip communities to bring healing and change to the fatherless landscape in our City. Some of our students and alumni are involved with this event and we at Multnomah thought it important enough to partner with the local churches to sponsor it the conference.
